You may have been one of the very many people that have seen us out and about or even spoke to us over the last couple of months. We've been at Forest Showcase, the local Co-ops and generally out in the Forest communities talking about volunteering, our new exciting projects such as Walking with Wheels, and finding out what matters to people in the area.
One man told us about how he was suffering from depression and had very little self-worth before getting involved with the Dean Green Team. He now says he feels like a 'real forester' for the first time since moving here more than 30 years ago.
We believe it's opportunities like this where people can come together and take part in meaningful activities that form the foundations of the caring, healthy, interdependent society that we can all benefit from.
